Have you ever caught yourself making a decision that you didn’t whole-heartedly want to commit to? Perhaps someone gave you advice or maybe there was an expectation set months before about something.

 

Today’s episode is all about making decisions that you actually feel good about. It’s trusting that inner gut and knowing that you made the right call for you.

 

“We all have inner wisdom and you know what is best for you.”

 

So why don’t we use this supposed guru ability? I promise it’s there, you just have to unlock it again. I’ve learned over the years (more so recently) that if I’m not slowing down and taking the time to get clear on what’s truly right for me, I’m scattered and super indecisive.

 

Did you catch that? Slow down and give yourself space – both physically and mentally. (Confession… those words may or may not be more for me than you as I am taking my own advice daily.) For me that’s taking long walks, going for a run or just going somewhere quiet to connect with my own thoughts. And keep in mind that it can take as little time as 15-60 minutes. Even if it’s not clear in that amount of time, see what pulls at your heart even just a little.

 

I’m not gonna lie. Some answers will come quicker than others. And often “sleeping on it” helps the most (science proves it)! Regardless of how quickly the answers come, know that you are the expert on YOU. Repeat the following phrases to help reinforce this notion.

 

“I have an inner guide. I have the wisdom within.”

 

Know that wisdom comes in many different forms and at the most random times. Learn what things make you feel good and that all is right with your world. After all…

 

“You are the smartest person you know when it comes to you.”

 

 

In This Episode You Will Learn:

 

  • How to trust your “gut feeling”
  • Why we need space and time to make decisions
  • Why we find it easier to listen to others about what we want

I know you will relate to today’s guest, Lori Kennedy, as she is as real as they come. As a successful entrepreneur and a single mother of two, she is the first to admit that her success didn’t happen overnight.

 

Starting out as a registered holistic nutritionist, Lori had no interest in the business side of things, but soon learned that her successful visions wouldn’t become a reality until she did.

 

Be sure to listen in as we talk about all the struggles and wins of her entrepreneurial journey so far and all the self-realization that’s come along with it. Happy listening!

With all of the recent events happening in the world between natural disasters, attacks and the loss of many lives, I’ve been asked how one should feel about these events. I’ve held back on responding because honestly, I didn’t know how I felt. I hadn’t even begun to process my feelings yet. But I do know that if we’re living in fear, it does nothing for the world.

“When you are in fear, you are not in power.”

So how do you take that power back? First, process your feelings – don’t pass them over. Heal yourself so you can spread love and light to others. Talk to someone, whether it’s a counselor, going to a trauma center or a dear friend who you know holds that space for you. Just be sure to give yourself the grace and space to process.

Once you’ve healed, be sure to keep that love and light in your life by surrounding yourself with those who allow you to do the same.

“Our environments reflect the results we get back in our minds.”

We know that if we stay connected to these groups or tribes we can nip fear and powerlessness in the bud and step into our power.

“When we put loving energy out it will be reflected to us in a bigger way in our lives.”

 

In This Episode You Will Learn:

  • Why it’s important to process our feelings
  • How to take back your power when you feel powerless
  • Why we must join groups or tribes that are rooted in love and light

Many don’t know this, but when I start selling my first eCourse, The Bliss Habit, I hadn’t even created it. Shocking, right? But it supports exactly what I want to talk with you all about today. You don’t have to know everything that you are doing before you actually get started!

I know it sounds a little bass-ackwards, but I assure you that some of the most successful people in the world had no clue what they were doing when they first started – they just knew they had to take some sort of action.

“You have to start doing to get clarity.”

You can plan all day every day for months and still never have anything to put out there. This is where faith and commitment comes in. You must have faith that if you set a date or book a venue – take some sort of step forward, it will happen. Scary, right?

“But in the panic there is complete magic.”

And a little bit of science, too. Science has proven that when you’re committed and people are saying “yes,” and you have to deliver, your brain gets super laser-focused on doing just that.

“The way to get started is to stop talking and begin doing.” – Walt Disney

My advice. Set the date and move forward. There’s no magic formula – just go for it. Make the commitment and take action TODAY!

What will you share with someone or commit to today?

You'll Hear About:

• Why you don’t have to know all the details before you get started

• Why it’s so important to have faith

• Why making a commitment can spur productivity

As many of you know, my upcoming Bliss Project event is only months away and hundreds of you have already registered to join us. But I know that for some, you’re still on the fence for various reasons… Perhaps this would be your first self-development/empowerment retreat. For others, you’ve never left your family for a whole weekend. For others, there is a fear that you’re not “far enough” or knowledgeable enough to attend such an event.

 

Whatever the reason, I can assure you that if you’re being called to attend, it’s the perfect event for you to attend. But don’t take my word on it. Listen in to today’s conversation as I interview five women about their Bliss Project experiences. You will notice many overlapping answers and that’s because we are all way more alike than we are different.

 

Whether you come along or bring a friend, the weekend WILL change your life. I cannot wait for you to hear all about it (and hopefully experience it in the near future) and join our INCREDIBLE Bliss Project tribe.

Up until very recently, I felt like I had a handle on facing my fears and getting comfortable with being uncomfortable, but I’ve come to realize that I haven’t even scratched the surface!

 

This weekend, I’m speaking at an event (THRIVE), and while I’m speaking to like-minded people, it’s not my usual audience. It’s got me stepping outside of my comfort zone and feeling all sorts of butterflies. It’s super beautiful and exciting but scary – all at the same time.

 

This quote I posted on Instagram sums up this fear, excitement and growth that I’m feeling and who I need to become to get through it:

 

“You’ll never grow into the woman you know you’re meant to be until she’s forced to come out. It’s your job to create a life she can’t hide from.”

 

So what does this mean? It’s our job to create a life based on not our current selves, but instead our future selves. You have to do the things, go to the places and let that woman out!

 

“You will rise to the occasion when your butt is on the line.”

 

Sounds scary, I know, but that’s the point. We all have “alter egos” that only come out when called upon, but you must have faith that it will appear. If you create these places when you have so much riding on your performance your higher self will come out. And if it doesn’t happen the way you think and you fall flat on your face…GOOD! You didn’t die, your learned from it and you know how to change it for next time.

 

“I’d rather be failing left and right and feeling alive and growing as a human being than walking around bored and half dead.”

 

There is no magic potion. We are ALL created the same, some just have more faith that things will work out and their higher self won’t let them down.

 

“Choose and create things that you have to show up for bigger than you ever have before.”

Stop waiting and create those places and situations where your higher self can come alive! It will scare the crap out of you, but that’s when you know you’re living a life of purpose and fulfillment. 

 

In This Episode You Will Learn:

 

  • Why you must get uncomfortable to grow
  • Steps that will help you step into your higher self
  • How we all have alter egos that come out when you need to level up

I am so excited for you to hear my conversation with successful serial entrepreneur, Mike Zeller. From real estate and men’s fashion to digital marketing and sustainable home goods, he’s committed to serving others (in a variety of businesses) and sharing the shifts he makes along the way.

 

Always an ambitious person, Mike used to once run himself ragged to the point of near burnout. However, throughout his experiences, he came to realize that taking time off from the “hustle” is needed and now actually increases his fulfillment levels in both business and his quality of life. If you’re looking to kick up the fulfillment levels in your life, I highly recommend tuning in to hear Mike’s valuable insights and knowledge bombs.

This past week, I’ve been feeling the importance of my tribe on a whole new level. If you listened to my podcast with Mastin Kipp last week, you’ll understand what I mean when I say, “With every new level there’s a new devil.” This could not be more true!

 

With my recent 14-Day Challenge wrapping up at the beginning of this week, I had a few instances come up that reminded me of the fact that the more challenges I do and the more people who join my tribe, the more diverse group of people I’m going to attract. And guess what? Even those these people are a part of my larger tribe, we all have different backgrounds and I’m not going to please everyone. It’s also a given that we’re not always going to understand one another.

 

It seems so simple when you write it out like that, but I didn’t get there as easily. As a verbal processor, I depended on the support of my own personal tribe to get me there. This is a group of people who I’ve collected over time and who I know hold space for me when I need it. And let’s just say I sent out the Bat Signal for them this week!

 

“Your tribe gives you feedback, but they’re also there just to hear you.”

 

Feedback is always welcome, however sometimes it doesn’t help. This is why all relationships must be two-sided. There must be agreements in place and space held for the other party to process as well.

 

“We have to create boundaries and we have to set clear ideas of what the relationship is.”  

 

This is, of course, different for every relationship and that is why you must communicate or one person may turn resentful. For me personally, I have a variety of tribe members. There are those that allow me to process, hold me accountable, support me, strategize, execute and celebrate. These lines do blend every now and then, but at the end of the day, I know who I can go to when I need it.

 

So out of the above categories, which would help you the most right now? And which is the easiest to implement? If you’re having trouble choosing one, you must work on focusing your attention to that.

 

“If you haven’t found what you want yet, it’s simply because you haven’t applied focus consistently.”

 

I know this is hard to hear, but as a person who has (and still can) struggle with this, I know it will change your life and help you tackle each new challenge that comes your way.

 

 

In This Episode You Will Learn:

 

  • That challenges never go away, they just change
  • Why finding a variety of people is so crucial in building your tribe
  • How you can set and practice fierce boundaries with your tribe

As a long-time follower of Mastin Kipp’s work, I am beyond thrilled to share our conversation with you. Not only does he talk about his journey (business and spiritual) up to this point, but he also touches on how his purpose seemed to evade him until recently and how he turned that experience into his new book, Claim Your Power. I’m currently reading it and it’s so amazing that he offers a practical step-by-step process to help you find your purpose, bring it to life and get out of your own way.

 

I love that Mastin is so transparent when it comes to his journey and I’m honored that he shares what he’s learned and experienced firsthand. There are so many powerful takeaways that can help you return to your natural state of happiness. If you’re willing and ready to work on finding your purpose this podcast is a must listen.

Today’s quickie is all about the word (and thing) justification. I once was a pro at justifying why I was the way I was (fearful, anxious etc.). I spent SO much time, energy and efforts on the excuses as to why I couldn’t do x-y-z when I could have been investing my time into my dreams!

So let’s try a little exercise… Let’s replace the word justification with excuses. Let’s call out those excuses and see them for what they truly are – false glass ceilings – because that’s all they really are no matter what you might think.

 

“Human beings can do whatever we believe we can do.”

 

So look for the justifications/excuses in your life right now and write them down.

 

“If your thoughts are going toward your justifications and excuses, you’re actually living for them.”

 

So which is it for you? Are you living to keep your dreams alive or are you choosing to fan the flames that keep the fires of justification and excuses burning? Take a deep look and discover what you’re really living for. Hint: If your time is spent making excuses and justifying, you’re never going to give the power to your presence to be able to move forward into your dreams.

 

“Give the power to your presence.”

 

Your family, friends and the world need your gift right NOW. Of course there will always be a dose of fear that comes along with it, but embrace it knowing that it feels a whole lot better than never stepping into your full potential.

 

In This Episode You Will Learn:

  • Why justifying and making excuses are holding you back from your dreams
  • How to call out your excuses
  • About the importance of breathing life into your dreams instead of your excuses

EYH – Ep. 165 – Danika Brysha – Surrender your way to success and become a magnet for your dreams

 

Today’s guest, Model Meals Founder and CEO, Danika Brysha, may look a little familiar to some of you as she’s been a part of several campaigns as a plus-size/curve model for big names such as Target and Old Navy. While she has a successful modeling career now, it was winding road to get there.

 

From a young age, Danika continually struggled to feel that she was enough when it came to her body. Growing up in the era of the size double-zero, she focused on her weight for more than a decade of her life. This fixation eventually reached its breaking point when it led to bulimia and dental issues.

 

Wanting to take care of her body better, Danika stopped throwing up but turned to drugs to keep the weight at bay. This went on for quite some time until she graduated college in the television industry and had had it with her body image struggle. She let go and let herself settle into where her body naturally fell (about a size 12/14). She was soon approached by an agent who suggested that she get into plus-size modeling. After signing with an agency and moving out to New York, her modeling career took off, but she soon hit another snag.

 

Wanting to start off the New Year (a new career and move, too) renewed, she tried the Whole30 meal plan. She was blown away by her results and not only did she lose 15 pounds, but she was amazed at how much clarity she had and how amazing she felt. Her plus-size modelings clients didn’t agree and she started to lose modeling gigs. As a way to earn money, Danika offered to help people in New York City eat cleaner by making meals for them. This side-business went well, but she still wasn’t able to make ends meet.

 

It wasn’t long before Danika moved back to California where she grew up and moved into her parents’ garage. This was a serendipitous moment, however as it led to the eventual launch pf Model Meals with a friend and Danika has since signed with a new modeling agency.

 

Danika’s journey of self-love is one of several ups and downs, but instead of fighting against them she’s learned to surrender and use her own feelings as a guide through them. Her story is so relatable and there’s something that everyone can take away from it. I hope you enjoy our conversation as much I did.

How many of you scroll through social media more often than you’d like to admit? Hand raised here! But check this out… My friend, Michael Zeller, just informed me the other day that when you’re distracted from a task, it takes 13 minutes for your mind to get back on track. So just think, if you’re sidetracked even four times a day, that’s a WHOLE hour of floundering trying to get back on track. This is why we must…

“Get fierce with eliminating distractions.”

These days our thoughts and social media are the winners when it comes to time-wasting. Now don’t get me wrong, I don’t think it’s always bad to spend time on social media, but it is when all you’re doing is comparing or numbing out. For instance, are you really just checking in on Jane, or do you immediately start comparing her life to yours when you look at her pictures? If the latter sounds familiar, I’m here to tell you that you’re not alone, and you CAN stop comparing yourself to others, But first, you have to beat the addiction to comparison (and the other common addictions such as judgment, blame and numbing out). Below is a chart of the common saboteurs and alternative practices you can implement to help rid yourself of those addictions and keep your happiness and productivity high!

“You are NOT stuck with who you think you are right now. Don’t believe everything you think – it’s probably not even your through.”

Recognize your honest truth (as hard and uncomfortable as that may be) and CHOOSE to see things differently and choose better thoughts.

“Your life will manifest around the things you think the most.”

In This Episode You Will Learn:

  • How comparison, judgment, blame and numbing out are keeping you from doing what you want to do
  • Tips to replace the above practices
  • Why happiness is your TOP priority

I am so excited to have my husband, Chris, on again! We’ve been asked a lot of questions such as: how do we work together day in and day out? How do we live our lives and what makes us happy? These conversations are so much fun for us and we love sharing the highs and lows of our lives so far.

As you’ll soon realize, while we have our “dream” lives now, it didn’t start out that way. Let’s just say I didn’t even want to give Chris the time of day when we first met! We obviously worked things out there, but be sure to listen in as we share some of our other ups, downs and lesson-learning moments in our lives.

This episode is jam-packed with information about the fundamentals of our success and happiness (and so much in between) and we hope you’re able to leave with some helpful takeaways. Please feel free to let us know what other questions you have for us! We look forward to continuing our conversation on another future episode. Happy listening! --

• How small decisions are HUGE in the long run

• Why it’s so important to be open and connect with more people

• How to deal with people who are cutting you down or holding you back

• The definition of positive propaganda and why you need it to support your goals

• Why it’s so important to find self-development activities that you enjoy

“Even if it doesn’t feel like it, the timing is perfect.”

“You will always find what you’re looking for.”

“We are constantly chipping away at the things that will make us happy and productive in the long run – even when we don’t feel like it.”

“Our routine-driven life has absolutely 10x’d all areas of our lives.”

“I’m happier, healthier, wealthier and more fit than I was yesterday.”

“By taking inventory of all the good stuff in my life, I’m dictating the thoughts that will dictate my day instead of letting my day dictate my thoughts.”

“If you’re not doing self-development in a modality that you like, then you absolutely won’t do it.”

“You set the pace for your relationship.”

“You are responsible for your own happiness.”

“Find joy in the journey.”

“Find your happiness in the pursuit every day.” --

In light of the devastation that’s happening in Texas right now with Hurricane Harvey, I wanted to help in the best way I know how – and that’s through the reach of my amazing communities. As some of you may know, I’ve launched my FREE 14-Day Challenge (starts Sept. 5) and I’ve decided to link it to a donation to the Disaster Relief Fun for Houston.

Here’s how I would love for you to help… For every five people that sign up for the challenge, we will donate $1 – up to $20,000. To put this in perspective, our dream number to equal that would be 100,000.

The added bonus, you GET TO move your bodies for yourself – and for a cause. There’s nothing like getting a big dose of perspective when you realize that there are thousands and thousands of people right now who CAN’T go for a walk or play with their kids outside right now. We all have days where we don’t want to work out, but when you realize just how blessed we are to move our bodies, it definitely reframes it. And it’s not just fitness, it’s everything in life.

“We make time for the things that mean the most to us.”

Whether it’s working out, having coffee with a friend or doing extra work, take ownership of your thoughts and actions. Sometimes it’s a matter of getting really honest with yourself and switching the phrase, “I get to…” becomes “I have to…” Or instead of “I can’t…”, reframe it to “I won’t.” Pretty powerful, huh?

“The beautiful and harsh truths free us.”

Once you can acknowledge this, reframe and forgive yourself.

“Don’t beat yourself up for the things you enjoyed.”

Catch yourself, reframe, forgive and love yourself. Again, I would love if you would go right now to loriharder.com/challenge to join my FREE 14-Day Challenge. Not only will you be working out for YOU, but for thousands upon thousands of others who can’t right now. Thank you so much in advance for your help!

In This Episode You Will Learn:

  • How you can help the victims of Hurricane Harvey
  • Why it’s important to reframe your thoughts
  • How the truth frees us

Fear. Yes, it’s one of my favorite topics and I often feel like I should talk about it more because it’s seriously something that’s there every day. Heck, it’s with us is most moments, am I right? But it’s in these moments where some of our biggest breakthroughs are made. It’s that something that you know you need, but you’re scared as hell to do it.

 

“What you are afraid of is a clear indication of the things you need to do.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson

 

Personally, one of the biggest breakthroughs for me came with the fear I had after making a significant investment in a course with Jack Canfield. My soul was kicking and screaming, nudging, okay, shoving me, toward it. Every fear that could possibly come up did and I almost bailed on my flight…but I didn’t. I joined an amazing group of people, some who were far more successful than me and realized that they had some of the exact same fears as me. What?! It gave me the power to question,

 

“If I can do this, what else can I do?”

 

Fear is just there to remind us of where we need to go. It lets us know what we’re capable of. It shows us how strong we are. It’s always there in some way, shape or form.

 

“I have fear present in my life at all times – I just have a great relationship with it.”

 

Without fear, life just doesn’t feel quite as exciting. After all, how would we ever appreciate what it feels like to accomplish our dreams without it? Hint: pretty lame.

 

So today, do fear a favor and say, “Thank you, fear. I don’t know what my life would be like without you.” 

In This Episode You Will Learn:

  • Why we need fear in our lives
  • How fear makes you aware of what you’re capable of and what direction to go
  • About the importance of trying new things despite any resistance or fear around it

As many of you know, I’m in the final days of writing my book (due this week) and the act of even doing this quickie podcast was painful. It’s not that I didn’t want to record a message for all of you, it’s just that I kept thinking about all the other things I should be doing. On top of that, I wanted to make sure I was delivering an impactful message to all of you.

I was so attached to how I was going to get there that I made it way more difficult than it needed to be. So, I took a deep breath, let go of that resistance and focused on what was at the forefront of my mind...and here I am!

“When you stop living in the resistance and actually just do the thing, it’s amazing what gets done.”

It was totally the same way before my workout today as well. Gah! Just do it already (and I did)! Anyone else? Resistance pops up everywhere, but it’s up to us to use it to our benefit. I’ve realized recently that I’ve had to let go of the idea that things should come to me in a certain form. When I have set expectations and thoughts that say it has to go one way, opportunities arrived to me in a very slow trickle. But once I surrendered and let go – BAM! Tedx Talk, my book, etc. And I know because I’ve fought to remain so open, much more is on the horizon.

“Surrender to life and watch things happen.”

I hope you join me for a short resistance-releasing exercise in this episode. Even 2-3 minutes of focus can turn things around for you. When you can create a space of surrender, you will make your decisions from a much more powerful, connected place. Are you ready? Trick question – do it anyway.

What feelings do you want? What can you let go of to get you to that place? What can the resistance you’re feeling offer you? I understand that this may make you feel a touch out of control, but be open and know you’re not letting go of the good things.

 

“You’re not losing control; you’re gaining your power back."

How much can you let go of today to gain that power back? 

In This Episode You Will Learn:

  • Why it’s important to surrender to life
  • How to tap into the feelings you truly want to feel
  • Ways to release resistance and let go

If you’re human (you all are, right?), you’ve likely had several dances with disappointment. And often those disappointments are because someone has let you down (or at least they’ve let your expectations down) at one time or another.

I know this may be difficult to hear, but the truth is that when you set expectations of others, you’re always going to be let down, and you’re never going to see the good in that person. So how do you get around this?

A recent realization I’ve made is that each person is meant to play a particular role. For example, maybe your friend, Sally, is hilarious, but she always bails on your get-togethers. But then you have another friend, who always has your back and can hold space for you when you’re upset. See how they both fulfill different roles in your life?

“Let people show up in the roles that they are best at.”

Once you realize that all friends don’t have to be ALL things you can free yourself and enjoy ALL of your relationships. Let go of your expectations!

Have you ever connected with someone only to never hear from them again? Of course you question why that is (was it something I said?), but most times it has nothing to do with you! Sometimes it’s just too much pressure for that person and they don’t want to let you down.

Go into all relationships with ZERO expectations. Don’t hold them to anything and just let them be their authentic selves.

“Release them. Free them. Free yourself.”

Instead of expecting, allow yourself to surprised. We all like a good surprise, right?

In This Episode You Will Learn:

• Why expectations lead to disappointment

• The importance of figuring out the role that different people play in your life

• How to let go of expectations

• Why having zero expectations in any relationship makes it easier

If you feel the need or calling to spend more time and connect with your soul, today’s heart-warming conversation with author and soulful teacher, Rebecca Campbell, is just the ticket. With an early fascination around the world of spirituality, souls and past lives, Rebecca had always felt a little “weird.” Not because she enjoyed these things, but because others were uncomfortable with it. And so from that young age, she seemingly led a double life – one that was “normal” with her school-aged friends and the other with a group of older, wise women who taught her about the healing arts and the power of intuitive arts. Rebecca always knew she wanted to create (writing, designing etc.), so following that path, she pursued the “normal” career in advertising. She had a very successful career as a creative director, but after experiencing a great period of loss, Rebecca knew she wanted to do more with all those little “soul whispers” that tugged at her heart. With the pipes and structures literally crumbling around her and navigating through her grief, Rebecca began to finally answer this calling and began to write what soon became her first book, Light Is the New Black, followed by Rise Sister Rise. She is grateful for all the life events that led her to where she is today and truly believes that this is the exact path she was meant to take. It is her hope that her story encourages you all to follow the “different path” if you feel so called – even if it happens in baby steps to reach your goals.

“The dots always join in the end and nothing is ever wasted.” --

Questions Asked in This Episode

• How did you get in touch with your inner wild woman to be who you are now? • Did you have to reframe while you were going through that journey? • What did surrendering to your soul look like? • Is there a way to answer the soul’s calling without hitting rock-bottom? • What do you say to someone who doesn’t know who they are? • How do you feel about women and sisterhood, and why is it important? • What do you when you feel like you’ve been put in a box as a “good girl?” • What has been the toughest thing you’ve had to let go of in order to step into your authentic self?

In This Episode You Will Learn:

• Why you need to listen to your “soul whispers” and the importance of connecting to them

Quotes:

“Often our soul’s calling is scary, but it was more uncomfortable and scary to stay where I was than it was to throw my life up in the air.”

“Sometimes rock-bottom moments are beautiful opportunities to just do it.”

“Alright, soul, you’re running the shop now.”

“The voice of our soul/intuition is the part of us that is linked to the entire universe.”

“Follow what lights you up.”

“When we’re inspired, when we’re lit up, we’re in our spirit and in that rhythmic flow and in that surrendered space.”

“When we connect in with our spirit, then we don’t have to work out every step of the way – we just have to move our feet.”

“In order for something to rise within us, something needs to fall away to clear that space.”

“When things are blooming, it’s just as good as when the leaves are falling.”

“If we’re trying to fit in a box, the people who ARE your people won’t be able to see you.” “Trust the wisdom of your soul.”

Getting 100% real with you today as I discovered that I was the recent object of someone’s gossip. Doesn’t the word alone just give you an icky feeling? Ugh, me too. And it made me want to gossip right back (which would have made me feel worse), but I didn’t.

It’s our first reaction when someone says something bad about ourselves or someone else, but it never leads to anything productive. So instead, I talked it over with my husband. Because I knew I was in a safe zone to express my feelings and talk things through, I was able to determine that I didn’t need to worry about what this person chose to say about me. I was able to let it go.

Now, this isn’t always the case, but because I’m not close with this person I knew there was nothing I could do that would change anything about the situation. And perhaps they didn’t even mean what they said in a bad way.

If, however, this was a close relationship I would have more than likely confronted this person if I wanted the relationship to remain intact.

“Gossip blocks your blessings.”

Words carry so much energy – both positive and negative – so don’t spend those precious words tearing someone else apart when you likely don’t know the full story.

“Words are either life-giving or death-giving.”

If you’re around gossip, “be the person who gossip dies with.” And if you find yourself around those who tend to gossip, realize it’s only a matter of time before you’re the subject of his or her talks. It’s up to YOU to take the high road.

“Be a gossip killer.”

Be the person who expresses their feelings and talks things out instead of building a wall or speaking untruths about others. Be the person who others can talk to and know that your words are safe with them.

In This Episode You Will Learn:

  • Why gossip might be holding you back
  • How to deal with someone who gossips about you
  • The importance of talking something through and coming to a peaceful conclusion
  • Why it’s important to find that “safe zone” when talking things through

I know you are all going to love today’s guest, Dave Asprey. Not only will you be in awe of his transformation story, but he shares so many useful tips and tools to help you gain more energy AND boost both the health of your mind and body.

A successful Silicon Valley tech entrepreneur and the founder of Bulletproof Coffee, Dave once weighed 300 lbs. and even though he spent 1.5 hours at the gym daily and ate a super low-calorie diet, he couldn’t budge the scale. He felt old in his young body. It wasn’t until he decided to cut sugar from his diet (and inadvertently lower his carb intake) that he lost 50 lbs. It took him another 7-8 years while biohacking and figuring out his body to lose the other 50.

Since that time and with an innate sense of curiosity, Dave has discovered and created techniques, and keys to taking control of and improving a person’s biochemistry, body and mind so they work in unison, helping one execute at levels far beyond what is expected without burning out, getting sick, or allowing stress to control decisions.

I learned and related to so much of this amazingly educational conversation and I hope you do as well. Dave’s determination and drive to discover more and more about the human body is so inspiring. I’m giddy just thinking about where his work will take us in the years to come.

Happy Listening!

Do you ever wake up and feel like you’ve just experienced spiritual amnesia? You know, when you take classes, listen to podcasts or do something else that lights your soul on fire only to wake up the next morning feeling…not so soulful, barely recognizing who you were the day before.

 

I’m here to tell you that this is normal. As one of my favorite quotes says:

 

“Every day is day one.”

 

It’s one of my favorites because it’s so true. You change on a daily basis and what happened yesterday has no bearing on today. So what made you happy yesterday, doesn’t necessarily make you happy today. And many days you won’t even know who you are…red flag!

 

“If you’ve forgotten who you are, you may want to reassess.”

 

Ask yourself, “what’s working for me. What’s not?” Are you continuing to do something because you think you should or because you think you’re going to get a certain result? Sometimes we’re so caught up in what we should do that we forget what we enjoy doing.

 

To ensure that I stay in this constant state of evaluation and questioning (and happiness), it’s imperative that I pray, meditate and get grateful (this is often only 5-6 minutes a day).

 

“Do the thing that makes you find peace.”

 

Get present, become aware and make time for what truly makes you happy – regardless of what’s happening that day (crazy work day, family visiting, running kids all over town). Play your favorite music that helps you get in flow. Drink that favorite cup of coffee even if you only have five minutes to have a few sips in a locked bathroom. ;-) You will find that every little bit helps to make this experience of life just a little more joyful.

 

What keeps you joyful and in the present?

 

 

In This Episode You Will Learn:

 

  • How to figure out what’s not working in your life
  • How to get present
  • Why having daily rituals are so important
  • How to make life more enjoyable
